mervis50: If it was 7 or 8 hundred dollars maybe....
Which it will be soon enough.
And if the viewfinder was a hundred....
Wait, scratch that. It has a viewfinder already. The LCD. Why would I want to press this tiny thing up to my face when I don't need to?
Anyway, good for Nikon. It's a start.
If it was 7 or 8 hundred dollars maybe....
Zvonimir Tosic: One nice proof that photography community today is led largely by very conservative, unimaginative reviewers, who already have "a clear idea" how camera should look like before it's even made. Even from the point of exploration of different and unconventional mirrorless design possibilities, K-01 was a good exercise because it does fit many people who tried it. And it was a risk, that has paid itself off. Understanding from the Photokina interview, the K-01 was yearning some profit for Pentax.Those who ignored reviewers and listened to their own common sense, as every self-respectful person today should do, have in fact discovered something of great value.
Right on, Zvomimir.
The internet hive-mind came crashing down on this camera even before nearly anyone had even handled it. As an owner, I wouldn't say that it's terribly different from other 2012 offerings. Except for its playful looks, it's basically a good camera with average AF and excellent image quality. A decent price and affinity with the whole line of Pentax lenses made it a winner in my books.
CarvingPhoto: This should of been the look of the k0-1. Give it a a hotshoe, interchangeable lens, and at least an ap-c sensor. Pentax's pancake lens would look so good on that body!
Hear, hear! Retro, schmetro.
mervis50: So does the screen move or not? The review doesn't say.
Oh. There it is,in the specs. Tilting. Good, then.

Kenneth Margulies: I hate Sony!!!--did you notice the purple fringing in that picture of a drink in the wine glass? Not just fringing, but purple bleeding everywhere!Oh....wait....it's a glass of wine... Seriously, I love these Canonikoniacs who push their noses against CRT monitors and pronounce their verdict on the picture samples.How about waiting a bit until dpreview can review the pictures?They got the originals and I trust that they will give the camera an objective review. Right now, you could substitute these shots for a lot of dSLRs and no one could identify the brand of lens or camera. In fact, I would bet that some dSLR shots could be switched for a decent P&S and no one here could guess which comes from what with any certainty.So...let's all take a breath and stop being fan-boys and haters. The pros at dpreview will soon speak with authority on the picture quality, etc.
Well, if we're waiting for the review, why bother posting ho-hum pictures. These sample galleries are just filler, IMO.
Ben Herrmann: Geeezzzz - no screw holes!!!! You're kiddin', right?
These grips are well known and Richard has made them for a whole slew of cameras over the past 5 - 6 years...and they work superbly. The grip makes a world of difference for camera balance and of course, your grip on the camera for better picture-taking.
The grips are attached via an adhesive backing that is quite tight and won't come off. Now granted, if you want it to come off, it will (like when selling the camera and you want to keep the grip).
These are superb accessories and he's stayed on top of it all by adjusting for different camera styles.
News or not, there are lots of folks who will jump at the opportunity of getting this grip.
As with all products meant to be attached with adhesive backing, there is no doubt some risk of it attaching itself in the wrong position if not perfectly applied. Is there allowance for trial & error?
